When did you first see Rocky Horror?
...sometime in the mid 80s after my ex had moved out. I knew some of the regular audience members and cast members from a local dial-up BBS. I sat next to regulars and struck up many friendships.
When did you join the cast?
Sometime in the late 90s
Why did you join the cast?
I love showing off (Acting!), but mainly at first it was to save money. I was out of work and liked going and could not afford driving there and buying a ticket.
What do you do on cast?
Anything they will let me? Usually Crim or Dr Scott. I played Magenta on a Rookie Horror Beach Night, played Brad only once so far, did a Trixie that caused brain damage (with maroon bikini briefs, sunglasses, and big cigar). It is an honor to be allowed to share the stage with so many talented people that I sometimes have to pinch myself; other times I just stroke myself (or at least I used to).
Who's sexier, Columbia or Magenta?
I could say Magenta because she rocks, but Columbia shows her nipples and is human, and I like women like that.
What keeps you going to Rocky every weekend?
For midnights on a Saturday, it is usually the best show in town. It is like a family -- dysfunctional, sure, but at least we are aware of it. I have friends, and I can get hugs, and young people do not mistreat me. Also I get to yell obscenities, which is cathartic.
Do you have a love/love or a love/hate relationship with Rocky?
I used to, but mental slippage and aging have made it increasingly difficult to cling to anything.
